Dreams and Promises
Love, Loss and Redemption in a Land of Infinite Promise


AVAILABLE at Amazon



Dreams and Promises includes six short stories and novellas written by authors who live in beautiful British Columbia.

It’s our way of honoring Canada’s Sesquicentennial.

Some of Canada’s major cities were founded in the seventeenth century, but July 1st 2017 marks 150 years since our country became a Confederation.

Our stories range from the era of the fur trade, to a commercial enterprise that opened up the Canadian and American West, to present day James Bay, a thriving neighborhood in the garden city of Victoria, British Columbia.

Among our heroes are a World War One soldier suffering from amnesia, an RCAF pilot from World War Two, and a pioneer prairie farmer.

A British war bride, a suffragette and a modern-day university student are just three of our heroines.

Our stories play out in a land of infinite promise and sometimes heartbreaking challenges.

Thank you for helping us celebrate our nation’s milestone birthday.

Author Description:
For this anthology Anna Markland enjoyed writing about a more “modern” era than the medieval times she normally use for her settings.

Besides writing, Anna has two addictions-crosswords and genealogy, probably the reason she loves research. She’s also a fool for cats. Her husband is an entrepreneur who is fond of boasting he’s never had a job. Anna lives on Canada’s scenic west coast now, but she was born and raised in the UK and loves breathing life into history.
